Nevada Promise Awarding Examples

Nevada Promise Scholarship is a last dollar scholarship that covers the registration and technology fees, not covered by other gift aid.

Gift aid is defined as a:

  • Federal Pell Grant
  • Federal Supplemental Educational Opportunity Grant (FSEOG)
  • Silver State Opportunity Grant (SSOG)
  • Governor Guinn Millennium Scholarship (GGMS)

Gift aid IS NOT:

  • Outside scholarships
  • Foundation Scholarships
  • Institutional grant awards

Gift aid will always be applied to registration and class fees, before a Nevada Promise Scholarship is award. The following are examples:

Example 1

$1,250  Registration fees & mandatory fees per semester
– $480  Millennium Scholarship per semester 
$770 Balance left for the semester

Nevada Promise will pay $770 to cover last dollar.

Example 2

$1,250  Registration fees & mandatory fees per semester
– $1,880   Pell Grant per semester
$630 Extra financial aid that can be used for books and supplies

Nevada Promise will pay $0 since the registration and fees are already covered.
